Mhogan no need trying to argue with these people. They will believe anything the government spoon feeds them. Because they work for NP they feel the need to be "politically correct". As the old saying goes "Never argue with an idiot because they will only drag you down to their level". This virus thing is a world power play and unfortunately they have enough buyers to keep selling it.

Captain, please produce your source that Sweden only has a 6.5% immunity rate. Really, there’s so much scientific debate that anything on COCID-19 is suspect. Wanna’ be shocked? How’s this headline: “No one has died from Coronavirus”. My “source” makes more sense of this than most of what has been fed to us by WHO or Fauci incorporated. “Calling the World Health Organization a “criminal medical organization” for creating fear and chaos without objective, verifiable proof of a pandemic, Dr. Stoian Alexov of the Bulgarian Pathology Association says “No one who has died from the coronavirus. I will repeat that: no one has died from the coronavirus.” Suggest you research this Dr Stoian Alexov (no active link here is available). His research makes a lot of sense and has been backed up elsewhere

Wide scale breaching of lockdown. Breaking laws by travelling on metro when supposed to be confined home etc. Parties and illegal gatherings. That could explain the growth in cases continuing. It affects us all. They should be put in camps On prison food not punished by a day in the sun sweeping roads

Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: New Covid-19 infections have skyrocketed in the Gen Z and millennial age groups. And while the death rate is lower among young adults, many are struggling with long-term effects from the disease.

Oh ya

We might be following the rules but i bet if one traveled the country you will find many that are not.. The government should place rules for the people who are at risk and let the rest of the country carry-on

Sorry, but the Lancet had lost its reputation with its fake HCQ study. No reason to believe it anymore

I think a journal that’s run for nearly 200 years is allowed a bit of leeway especially when they confirmed there was an error in posting the finding and withdrew it.

Spain's large-scale study on the coronavirus indicates just 5% of its population has developed antibodies, strengthening evidence that a so-called herd immunity to Covid-19 is "unachievable," the medical journal the Lancet reported on Monday.

Can someone explain why the cases and deaths are going in the wrong direction versus, say, the US, Sweden. We’ve been under lockdowns (with only a short retrieve weeks ago), masks are mandated, we get sprayed with alcohol and temp taken before entering businesses, and wait patiently like good little subjects on designated strips, can’t enjoy dining out, getting a haircut, or socializing if more than 10 are present, dare not go to a hospital for a heart check or cancer screening for fear of getting virus. So what are we doing wrong that some other countries are doing right? Come on, guys, this can’t go on much longer — we’ve relinquished freedom enough already and our health and sanctity is important too. Maybe time to rethink herd immunity because a vaccine may not be well received
